My official answer is "pay an expert to do it," but I'd also add that it couldn't hurt to try to negotiate the price down. I can also understand the DiY desire to do it oneself. But the risks are high. It'd be a shame to see one of your friends injured... But, if you...

I haven't played very many C. Bechstein pianos, so my observations are based on a small sample size.... I agree it doesn't project like the Steinway B can. I also agree about each note producing the same type of tone, even at different volumes. Some people like the sameness ac...

It seems that the biggest disadvantage to TunicOnlyPure is that it essentially only knows how to tune one type of temperament, as opposed to TuneLab and Verituner, which allows the tuner to explore many options. Having said that, TunicOnlyPure seems to be the best at tuning unis...
